“Clothes are portable houses which have grown around us like the shell of a snail. But the fetish for encasing ourselves in layer upon layer of clothing is gradually breaking down and we have now discovered that we can come out of our shells and move freely in the sun, the air and the water. This, and not the television or the atom bomb, is the greatest step forward of our time.” — R. Broby-Johansen, Body and Clothes: An Illustrated History of Costume
